June is here and it feels like summer is too! The weather is heating up, the beaches are packed, and I feel like I’m already transitioning into easier, carefree outfits. I’m always looking to mix things up a bit with my hair because I tend to do the same thing – loose waves. Since it’s so hot in the summertime, I prefer to not use heat unless I have to. Or I’ll curl my hair one day and then do different styles during the week. Today I’m sharing easy no heat hairstyles that take 5 minutes or less. And to be honest, some will take under 2!
Easy No Heat Hairstyles That Take 5 Minutes or Less
Hairstyle #1: Add a Hair Tie
This is probably the easiest update you can do! I love adding a little bandana scarf to my ponytail because it takes about 10 seconds to execute, but instantly updates your outfit. I like to do this when I’m running out the door and don’t have as much time to get ready. Bandana scarves are such a great styling accessory, whether it’s around your neck, in your hair, or on your purse. Here are easy ways I like to tie a bandana scarf around my neck.
Hairstyle #2: Tiny Side Braids
When I was challenging myself to style my hair differently, I came up with this look on my second day of curled hair. I added in a tiny side braids on either side of my head and hid the rubber hand with a piece of hair and a bobby pin to make it look cleaner. This would be a fun style for summer when you just want to mix things up a bit. To make this look more beachy and casual, add some surf spray!
Hairstyle #3: Half Up Ponytail
This might be my new go-to hairstyle! For the past few summers everyone has been into the half up bun hairstyle. While I love that style, I wanted to take it down a notch, literally. This hairstyle couldn’t be simpler, it’s just a half up ponytail. I’m really loving this look because my hair is still down but it’s out of my face. I also like that it has a retro, 60’s feel.
Do you have any favorite ways you like to style your hair in the summer? Of course, there’s always a fishtail braid, a messy bun, or you can learn how to use those rollers you have stored in the back of your bathroom cabinet! Anyone else?
